This Is Technics’ First-Ever Reference Class Integrated Hi-Fi In-Home Amplifier

Sep 9, 2020

Category: Tech

Founded in 1965, Technics has long been the benchmark-setting standard in the professional DJ realm with its legendary SL1200 turntable, though in recent years the Osaka outfit has increasingly been branching out into novel territories, first with its EAH-AZ70W true wireless earbuds back in July, and now the SU-R1000, the Japanese brand’s first-ever Reference Class integrated amplifier.

Building on Technics’ already impressive SE-R1 RC amplifier from back in 2014, the SU-R1000 boasts a slew of cutting-edge and proprietary components and technologies, including Technics’ Active Distortion Cancelling Technology (or ADCT), though elements from the 2014 model like Load Adaptive Phase Calibration and Jitter Elimination and Noise-Shaping Optimization remain in play, as well. And, like the brand’s SL-1000R turntable from 2018, the SU-R1000 benefits from analog technology backed by digital control. It’s also hard not to appreciate the old-school-style VU meter. Slated for a release in the final quarter of 2020, the Technics SU-R1000 Integrated Amplifier will be priced at approximately $9,500.
